'How to Make It in America' Stars Bryan Greenberg & Victor Rasuk On Hustling, Maturation and Conflict in Season 2

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 1st 2011 10:00AM
'How to Make It in America' is another aspirational buddy comedy from HBO that's drawn relentless, convenient comparisons to 'Entourage.' But the story 'How to Make It' tells is much better suited to the vibe of these economic times.

Following a diverse crew of young, broke and cool friends trying to get by and ahead in New York, 'How to Make It' resonates with a generation of hipsters, even after an uneven first season. Like many of its characters, the show does some growing up in Season 2.

I got a chance to talk with 'How to Make It' stars Bryan Greenberg and Victor Rasuk about where Ben, Cam and CRISP are headed in the new season (premieres Thurs., Oct. 2, 10:30PM on HBO). They described the maturation of their company and characters, and foreshadowed some conflict that arises between them after CRISP's first taste of success.

Wondering 'How to Make It in America'? Ask These Guys

by Mike Harvkey, posted Feb 10th 2010 12:00PM
On the new HBO series 'How to Make it in America,' Victor Rasuk and Bryan Greenberg play Cam and Ben, two best buds living the struggler's life in and around New York City. Ben's an artist. By day he hocks designer denim at Barneys; by night he paints skateboards, canvasses or whatever else he can get his hands on. He's as familiar with the downtown late night art scene as he is with the Upper East Side Jewish community his parents belong to. He's the straight man to Cam's exuberant hustler-from-the-hood. Cam's the kind of New York kid who's always on the lookout for the next score and is willing to ride his bike all the way to the Bronx in order to find it.

'How to Make it' was created by Ian Edelman and came to HBO via Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levison's Leverage production company, which is responsible for 'Entourage' and 'In Treatment.'

AOL TV recently caught up with Greenberg and Rasuk, two of the most animated guys you'll ever meet, to get their advice on B-Ball, Brooklyn and the American Dream.

Lifetime nixes ABC's October Road and Men in Trees

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 20th 2008 10:23AM
Men in treesThis is disheartening. ABC has been looking to Lifetime as a new home for Men in Trees and October Road. Both dramatic series have not as yet been picked up for next year, and now this report makes it clear they are both skating on thin ice. The powers that be at Lifetime were given copies of both shows to review and chose not to pick up either of them. They basically threw the ball back to ABC, forcing the network to decide the fate of these two shows.

October Road creator feels lucky, nervous

Scott Rosenberg

One of the creators of the freshman drama October Road told the Boston Globe he was surprised that his show -- about a successful writer returning to his Massachusetts hometown filled with people he satirized in his novel -- got picked up. But getting a coveted post-Grey's Anatomy time slot is a lot of pressure.

"Given what's on TV, I do feel like we snuck one by," said Scott Rosenberg, who based October Road "loosely" on his film Beautiful Girls which the Globe said was "loosely based" on his life. "Everyone's out there looking for the next Lost or 24, and here's this little show."

October Road, shot in a suburb of Atlanta but crafted to try to look like an autumnal Boston suburb, features caricatures of some of Rosenberg's friends from his hometown of Needham, friends who still aren't happy with how they were portrayed in Beautiful Girls.

October Road: Pilot (series premiere)

by Meredith O'Brien, posted Mar 16th 2007 9:45AM

Nick Garrett on October Road(S01E01) I went into the series premiere of October Road with very low expectations. The reviews, by and large, ranged from "this show is so-so," to "this show blows."

But still, something made me want to watch. It was set in the greater Boston area. (I live in the Boston area.) A character wears a Boston Red Sox cap all the time. (There are many different kinds of Sox caps in my house.) The main character's a writer . . . you get the idea.

With the gift of the time slot after Grey's Anatomy -- but the curse of being up against the NCAA first round games -- October Road was given a golden opportunity that many new series aren't.

And it kind of faltered. But, if ABC gives it enough time (a precious, almost non-existent commodity in today's primetime environment), I think there's a chance that, like the freshman series Brothers & Sisters, it could, repeat, could right its ship. If it stops being so heavy-handed that is.

October Road to take the place of Men In Trees for a month

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 23rd 2007 4:04PM

Bryan GreenbergThe new drama October Road will slide into the post-Grey's Anatomy slot, Thursday at 10pm, on March 15, knocking the Anne Heche show Men In Trees onto the shelf for about a month (that show will return in April).

I've been looking forward to October Road ever since I first heard about it last year, for two reasons. One, I found out a friend of mine is working on it, and two, it's about a writer who decides to go back to his hometown and the people there resent him because of all of the things he wrote about them in his books. That sounds like a great premise, though I wonder how it will translate to weekly television.

The show stars Bryan Greenberg (Unscripted, One Tree Hill, Life With Bonnie) as the writer. Also in the cast are Tom Berenger, Laura Prepon, and Geoff Stults.
